How will President Obama go down in History, ... both on the home front and globally ?

 

Although some of you may feel the question is premature, however, with the spotlight now on Hillary Clinton, the global thinking is that Obama’s term is pretty much over.

 

Granted, there could be some unforeseen events during the remainder of his term, that may add to the final consensus.

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, what are your thoughts if you had to write them today?

 

Thanks for your consideration in history making.

Obama is getting $400,000 for speeches...Not entirely as good as Former President Clinton, but gaining in popularity...

Russia stepped in in 2013. Russia, as one might remember; Took all of Assad's Chemical stores, and weapons from the mere premenance that Assad would have Chemical Weapons to reign on any land within Syrian's Border. Obama should have rained 200 Tomahawks on The Assad Regime to, at the least send Assad  a message of Assad's War Crimes , perpetuated on his own people and further instill the idea that Assad was on the path to be Convicted in the World Court of attrositicities against his people in Syria...Russia stood in the way of this, As Did The U.S.Congress, and our Allies who knew a new war was not palatable among U.S., and Allied Nation Citizens...

I guess Obama could have acted then, and asked for forgiveness with Congress, Later. Congress was looking all of Obama's 8 years on impeachment Procedings, but NEVER could find prominance on this, or any other issue.

 

We see that Congress in 2017 passed on admonishing a President for lobbing 60 Tomahawks at Assad. My, How Time, and Congressional Change Changes everything.

Obama learned that even Directives Could be Challanged, and nullified as President. Apparently, someone has not read the MEMO,Yet, in This Administration!

Quoting leonicvirgo:

Obama Did Not Tweet on Trivial Matters,Nor Ostrisize himself from either Partisan Aspect's of the House, Senate, Or the Judiciary. He exemplified not only what a Presedent Should Do, But What A President Should Not Do...(:LV1:)



~~  leonicvirgo  ~~

 

Speaking of which, I recall Congress Not approving President Obama's request for permission, to retaliate against Syria's chemical weapon use, back in September of 2013.

 

The above is contrary to the recent 59 cruise missile attacks, in the first week of April 2017.  It appears that, the unilateral ' punishment ', was done Without the consent of The House, Senate or Judiciary.

 

I stand to be corrected.

I do think that there are countless items in an 8 year Presidency. I believe that each Major item should be examined for it's truthful positives, No issue, and the negatives of points in Obama's Presidency. There are always, Grey area's between the Positives,and the Negatives. The Major issues are issues several Presidents had to deal with, during their administrations. Take, for instance; Immigration.

Then President Obama issued an Executive Order to provide Temporary Amnesty to illegal immigrants, Due to the Republican Congress's "NO" Vote with anything Obama proposed, and the inability of Congress to propose a solution. Why? Some people have threaded that  Businesses could control both behavior, and wage of illegals, and there are jobs regular Americans would not do, for the proposed wage. The Mayor of Salt Lake City,Utah said on a major talk show that without this workforce, The Olympics could have not been pulled off. Not all illegals are fellons, beyond the idea that they are here illegally.

If Obama's Order would have been followed, I believe that 3.5-6 Million Immigration Applications would have been filed. That means that the IRS would be able to legally take 30% of an applicant's Paycheck, during a process that takes from 5-10 years,usually. There are over 11 million illegals from many nations in this country, now. There are from 4-6 million Dreamers( Anchor Babies coming of the age of 18, or are past that age; or have slipped into the country illegally) here also. Some chose the U.S Millitary as a path to citizenship. Some might say that my estimates are conservative, and that the problem is bigger now, opposed to the time that Obama issued this Executive Order. Keep in mind that ICE could have still been prowling the streets, looking for fellonious illegals, and documenting, and holding illegals they found, for processing. Temporary Amnesty for all;Documenting,and processing for the ones who are caught- A 2-part strategy.

Most would agree that Obama deported more than 2.5 million illegals during his Presidency.....If one accepts that rules of counting, and the definition of an undocumented illegal changed during the Bush Jr. Presidency...(:LV1:)

Quoting Diana3316:

Hello SL,

 

It’s so very good to see you!  Unfortunately, I am so despondent I can hardly speak to anyone.  The recent election results have left me feeling angry and disappointed.  I am not so much upset about the election of a crass, bigoted, racist, misogynistic, P-grabbing Cheat…..but rather that 46% of Americans voted for him, despite these known facts about him.  I thought Americans were better than that!  I knew there were some really ignorant people in this country….I just can’t believe there are so many.  They have no moral ground to stand on! 

 

Have you noticed how the Clinton email scandal has just disappeared since the election?   Fox News:  training ignorant Americans to destroy their own country, one false story after another! 

 

The term ‘Ugly American’ has come back to international relevancy.  While you may say I should not paint all who voted for Trump with the same brush…..I say:  Show me your friends and I will know who you are.   They have put a Russian Mole in the American Presidency for God’s sake!  Reagan is likely rolling in his grave!!  I think we should make an update.  Stupid, Ugly Americans.

 

Sorry about hijacking your blog.  You know how I feel about Obama.

Hey Leo, Yes I watched and Melbourne Florida has about 96 thousands residents and 96 % are Caucasian so of course he would be applauded they voted for him it was easy to pick out those small pockets of towns that voted for him. 

 

 

Man what a mess!

 

 Yours truly. 


**  born1top, et al  **

 

Your comment in response to leonicvirgo's post, is hereby acknowledged. 

 

I have refrained from elaborating on it, for the following legitimate reasons :

 

Firstly, This Topic is Exclusive to The History & Legacy of President Obama, and Not The 45th POTUS.

 

More importantly, I shall respect Stan's blog, which was, and might still be,  specific to the current issues, as the appropriate platform.  The disappearance of it is perplexing ?.  I hope it is temporary, and will be re-instated soon.

 

In order to protect this actively acclaimed blog, which was started on April 15, 2015, I believe the best interest is to keep it within the original scope, and away from possible adversarial acts, due to the changing political climate, and emotions.

 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, please feel free to address any and all of your thoughts and feelings, on This Topic, which is ongoing.

 

May I kindly remind You and all other members, that The Legacy of A President, continues after leaving office, and even past the duration of their life.

This important fact, was pointed out by an earlier ' Scholarly Member ', at the debut of this very topic.

Great question, Thanks.  

 

The Pied Piper Legend, goes back to the thirteenth century, when the children of Hamlin, mysteriously disappeared. 

 

Originally, touted as ' The rat catcher ', that was looked upon as a saviour from the plague.  But when He did not get enough money, somehow lured the town's children away, by tooting his horn.

 

There are several theories, and it all remains a mystery to this very day.  But through it all, it appears that The Piper was a symbol of Doom. 

 

I shall let you figure out, ... The rest of the story, Professor Mac.  An analogy of course, albeit mysterious.

Regarding The Domino Effect, I had mentioned a while back, it appears to have begun globally.   

 

There are serious concerns now that,  " The Pied Piper of Hamlin ", is tooting his horn.

 

In time, I believe President Obama's Legacy, will be something many will treasure, Historically.

I believe the American people should give Trump a chance. Better the devil you know than the one many didn't know. Certain roles humble people and Trump is authentic. He is learning and he will deliver results. Many cannot see he is there to save America in so many ways. He does not need bribes or the money. He is been placed there not by chance but by choice which so many people fail to recognise.

Quoting Maryclaire2000:

 

Hi SL ,

 

You know Im not politically involve and engage but I will answer your original question in my own knowledge ..

 

The outgoing Pres. Obama will go down the History according 

to his achievements for the last 8 years ..He is a nice guy and Internationally he is well known and accepted except Russia ..

2 dys. before the Election I watched a Polit Talk involving several experts , a term was given to him as the " Unfulfilled " 

Pres. ..1st and foremost he was not able to " unite "a divided

America , he was the 1st Pres. to work on with the Health System but didn't get through ; etc ..last but not the least , he 

caused the recent bad Refugee Politic here in Europe which is now known to everybody ..

 

Another term is coming up , he is the 1st Pres. who cried before the crowd of supporters and media ..I think even if his 

performance didn't really meet the real needs of the people

but we should give him a credit for being human and a real 

Politician ..( See Trump ..Oh no ..)..

 

About Trump , I doubt about his ruling power but we should

keep our fingers crossed and hope he will not disappoint  his 

voters and the whole population who is expecting for a better

change ... Goodluck guys ...


**  Maryclaire  **

 

Your honesty, in stating that the above quoted opinions are of a third party, is appreciated.  To help you better understand politics, ... They are pretty worthless, based on the following facts :

 

1.  Preisdent Obama was elected into office by diverse citizens, to economically rescue The Country which was in a seriously deep recession, along with it's many related problems.

He successfully accomplished that.

 

The 44th POTUS did Not Campaign, nor was He elected to magically solve a vague and ambiguous " divide " those critics mention.

 

2.  To create Affordable Health Care, was a battle in Capitalist America, coupled with political hurdles from the opposition. 

President Obama's humanitarian efforts and accomplishments in this area , Is A Historical First.

 

For anyone to dis-respect or denounce such, without offering an acceptable practical alternative, is the highest form of insult.

 

3.  To place blame on President Obama for The Syrian Refugee Crisis, simply has No Merit.  The Assad Regime, goes back to 1963, (Barack Obama was 2 years old) when Hafez al-Assad was involved in The Syrian Coup d' Etat that brought The Arab Socialist Ba'ath Party into power.

In a second coup 3 years later, The Ba'ath Party was toppled by a militant Salah Jadid, and in 1970 Assad who was their defence minister, toppled Jadid to gain control as the leader of Syria.

(Barack Obama now 7 years of age)

 

Hafez al-Assad sided with the Soviets in The Cold War, and began " One Man Rule " with a personality cult.

 

Upon Hafez's death in 2000, His Son Bashar succeeded him, to continue as Supreme Leader.

The turmoil from 1963 persisted all along.

 

In 2011, defectors from Assad's military, joined forces with the " Free Syria " Army, causing Bashar's regime to begin killing thousands internally.  Just as in 1982 (Barack Obama 22 yeasr of age) when they massacred over 10 thousand to maintain power.

 

The situation became very complicated, with the joining in of Kurdish Nationals, Hezbollah, Iran, Russia, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Al-Qaida and ISIS over the years.

As you may know, an extremist Iraqi group moved into Syria, creating ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria)

 

Commander in Chief, President Barack Obama did the absolute right thing, Not to intervene militarily, in an extremely volatile and potential World War 111 Situation.   There is No shortage of military arsenal in Syria, due to oil money on the one hand, and Russia on the other.

 

The Middle East Wars, are Not The Responsinility of The U.S.A.

 

Thank You President Obama, for Not Sacrificing A single Life, of Those in Service.

 

Silverlion.

Thanks for your eloquent comment, albeit off topic.  Nonetheless, may I offer you the following clarity :

 

It is well documented that, Hillary Clinton received the majority of the citizens popular votes.  The final certified numbers are ; 65,844,954  vs  62,979,879.  Clearly indicating She was the peoples chioce for The 45th POTUS.

Also the widest discrepency between popular and electoral, since 1856.

 

However, via the complex College Electoral system, ' The world tilts and watches in amazement '.

 

IMHO,
